EU, EEA and Swiss nationals applying to work at Cardiff University from 1 July 2021

The UK left the EU and free movement law ended on 31 December 2020. There was a grace period of 6 months to allow EU, EEA, Swiss citizens, and their family members resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS). This grace period ended on 30 June 2021.

If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen beginning work in the UK from the 1 July 2021, you will need some form of permission to work, whether through the EU Settlement scheme or otherwise, such as a visa under the UK points-based immigration system.

Please note Irish citizens continue to have unrestricted access to work in the UK and do not need permission to work here.

For further information please see the UK Government webpages on the points-based system.

Please note that we have a Relocation Scheme and an International Staff Loan Scheme to assist international staff with such costs.
